SB Live! 5.1 with Digital and Analog at the same time

Discussion in 'Soundblaster Live' started by Positronic Cat, Dec 29, 2003.

  1. I recently purchased a SB Live 5.1 card, and discovered that I'm only
    able to get Digital or Analog to work, not both. I'm running windows

    I picked up a nice set of digital Boston Acustic speakers with the
    card, and wanted to use these for my front channels, and then for my
    rear channels the stereo which is already in the room. However, I
    can't get the analog to output at the same time as the digital. As a
    result I can either hear my front channels, or my rear channels, but
    not at the same time.

    Is there a solution to this? I understand from reading pages about
    the Linux driver for this card that it's possible for the card to do
    this. The windows drivers however don't seem to be able to do this.

    The only thing I can think of is for you to doubleclick the speaker icon in
    the systray and make sure the "digital output only" in the advanced controls
    window is NOT checked...

    If it isn't, and you still don't get digital and analog at the same time, I
    can only suggest you contact Creative and ask them about it (unless someone
    else here knows more of course).
